Hole in My Heart: Memoir and Report from the Fault Lines of Adoption, Paperback/MS Lorraine Dusky

0 ( 0 )
Description HOLE IN MY HEART is a birth mother's story told by the brave woman who defied convention and in 1975 broke the silence of women who had lost children to adoption. An award-winning journalist and a pioneer in adoption reform, Lorraine Dusky tells the heart-breaking story of relinquishment, reunion and redemption as she and her daughter navigate new territory in building a relationship and Dusky becomes an outspoken advocate for opening sealed birth records for adoptees. Psychological research places her story in a larger context and illuminates the hard truths that are at the center of every adoption-loss, guilt, abandonment and an incomplete sense of identity. Her daughter, the adoptee with two families, also speaks of the complications and uncertainties that infuse her life. Numerous footnotes. About the Author Lorraine Dusky is an award-winning journalist, editor and author. Her ground-breaking memoir, BIRTHMARK, published in 1979, is the first from a birth mother writing about the sorrow of relinquishing up a child to adoption.

Her other books include THE BEST COMPANIES FOR WOMEN and STILL UNEQUAL: THE SHAMEFUL TRUTH ABOUT WOMEN AND JUSTICE IN AMERICA.

She has been a senior editor at Town & Country, Working Woman and Mc Call's, and a contributing editor of Yoga Plus Joyful Living. First Mother Forum, which she originated in 2008, is one o
